We are disappointed to announce that we have cancelled this year’s
Affordable Senior Housing Resident Advocacy Day and Senior Housing Now rally
which would have taken place on the Capitol steps on April 1, 2020.
As you may know, at least one local health department is advising seniors to not gather in large groups to help minimize their risk of infection of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Out of an abundance of caution and coupled with the vulnerability of our seniors who participate in the event, we determined the best course of action is to forego this year’s event.
We apologize for any inconvenience and regret that we will not be able to celebrate our 10th year of this event together. We will be back in 2021 better than ever with an event that will be sure to further our advocacy for affordable senior housing! Watch for details soon.
Thank you again for all the work you have done to make this event such a success every year.
For the last decade, LeadingAge California has organized an Annual Affordable Senior Housing Resident Advocacy Day that gives residents of affordable senior housing an opportunity to travel to the Capitol and share their stories with state legislators about how affordable housing has impacted their lives. The event has grown significantly over the years and become very popular for our members and the seniors they serve throughout California.
commemorate 10 years of advocacy for affordable senior housing, this year’s
Resident Advocacy Day will consist of a "Senior Housing NOW!" rally on the northern steps of the State Capitol, where our crowd and speakers will call attention to the importance of affordable senior housing.
